Our man Jos is back again, and this time he is talking about memory optimizing temporary data structures. And true to form, Jos brings in the whiteboard and spends 35 minutes walking us through how to improve TempDB performance by leveraging some of the In-memory OLTP technologies.
No slides, just pure in-depth information. Enjoy.

Adapted from an internal Microsoft event - presented by Nolan Lawson. The slides for this presentation are available here.
Recent research by DoubleClick shows that 53% of mobile sites are abandoned if they take longer than 3 seconds to load, and that the average load time on 3G is 19 seconds. Worse, a report by TwinPrime shows that mobile networks aren't always improving – in the U.S., LTE speeds actually decreased 50% in the past year. In this talk, I'll analyze the web performance crisis and show how we can combat it by using the latest advances in web tooling, as well as dusting off some forgotten best practices from our industry's past.
Please note there's a minor error where Nolan says 2000s and meant 2010s. He deeply regrets the error (a)(image)

This has to be one of the coolest "real-world" Kinect implementations...
"If you thought Amazon Go — the funky corner store concept where there are no checkouts and the store automatically bills you for whatever you walk out with — would lay claim to the future of supermarket shopping unopposed, think again. Carlo Ratti, an MIT professor who founded the institution’s Senseable City Laboratory to conceptualize how technology can impact the lives of city-dwellers (and who also runs the Carlo Ratti Associati design firm) partnered with Italian grocer Coop to create what it calls a “Supermarket of the Future.” It’s a grocery store with a tech twist, and it’s now open for business.
Now open in Milan, Italy, the futuristic grocery store is like nothing that’s come before it, both in terms of tech integration and even in its layout. Products aren’t just stacked haphazardly on shelves or tossed in bins; the items are curated and meticulously, and everything from their origin to their path to the store itself is tracked and cataloged for the consumer
When a customer wants to know more about any item of produce, like an apple or a head of lettuce, they simply hold the item up and an overhead display reveals all the important facts about it. Microsoft Kinect sensors built into the mirrored display identify the item and spit out all the vital details. Customers can see detailed information on allergens, the item’s carbon footprint, and check pricing and current store promotions related to it.

In this episode of Azure Friday, Scott Hanselman is joined by Brendan Burns (Partner Architect, at Microsoft & Kubernetes co-founder) to talk about containers and support for Kubernetes orchestration in Azure Container Services. Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.
As Brendan wrote in his blog post on Kubernetes.io, Bringing Kubernetes Support to Azure Container Service, "The integration of Kubernetes into ACS means that with a few clicks in the Azure portal, or by running a single command in the new python-based Azure command line tool, you will be able to create a fully functional Kubernetes cluster that is integrated with the rest of your Azure resources."(image)
